On Saturday, September 8th, Urban Weaver participants met in Stanley Park and along with other volunteers harvested English Ivy as part of the Stanley Parks 'Ivy Busters' program.
On site in the forest near Brockton Oval
A generous pile of ivy was designated "For Artists Use" only and set aside for us to take back to the studio . . . where we spent the rest of the afternoon coiling and bundling our newly aquired weaving material!
A donation of fresh cattail leaves were also bundled for fututre projects and weaving exploration.
Next Harvesting date:
Saturday, October 13th (cookies and refreshments provided by the SPES cookie volunteer!)
